City Arts Commissioner Lynn Selich Talks to radio station KPCC about the Concerts on the Green. Listen here.
The City Arts Commission would like to thank the community for their participation and support of the City-hosted Pacific Symphony concert in 2016. It was a wonderful evening of music by Pacific Symphony, led by Music Director Carl St.Clair. The date for the 2017 concert still to be announced.
The evening will begin with the Symphony’s “Musical Playground” starting at 5:30 p.m. which features many interactive and hands-on activities for children, including instrument making, a drum circle, an instrument petting zoo, and an opportunity to meet the musicians. Kids will have the chance to learn how to conduct with Maestro Carl St.Clair and later help lead the orchestra.
The concert, featuring Pacific Symphony playing popular classics, selections from "The Sound of Music" and patriotic tunes, will begin at 7:00 p.m. and end promptly at 8:30 p.m. with a brief midway intermission.
Admission to the concert is free and free parking is available in the Civic Center parking structure and adjacent Central Library parking lot. Concert goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner or purchase food and refreshments from TK Burgers or Chunk-N-Chip food trucks that will be on site. Attendees should also bring low-slung beach chairs and blankets for the outdoor event.
Enjoy Pacific Symphony concerts in Newport Beach!
Thank you to CITY NATIONAL BANK, City Council, Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, National Charity League, Visit Newport Beach and a growing list of organizations and individuals who are supporting this special event.
